Meet Our New Teachers

My name is Cambell McKenzie and I am a new teacher at Mildura West Primary School, teaching grade 3. I have recently completed my Bachelor of Education at the La Trobe Mildura campus. I am very excited to finally be where I have dreamed of being for a very long time, in a school environment changing the lives of students and providing them with life long skills. I am very down to earth, friendly and humorous so I am always happy for a chat around the school. I love spending time with friends and family, meeting new people, testing my skills and playing various sports within the community such as tennis.

Hi everyone! My name is Mrs Trudy Sakkas. I am super excited to be teaching at Mildura West Primary School this year in a fabulous Grade 1 class, and with wonderful teaching colleagues and support staff. In my family I have my husband George (who attended MWPS as a child), my sons Johno (15), Connor (13), and Alex (4), and daughter Alana (9) who is also starting in Grade 3 this year at Mildura West. In my spare time I love cooking, reading, playing tennis and DIY projects at home. I am really looking forward to meeting new students and their families over the coming weeks. 2017 is going to be a great year!

Hi, my name is Tracy Pope and I am teaching Grade 5 this year. I have previously taught at St. Paul's Primary School in Mildura and at Yulara School, which is a primary school located at Ayers Rock Resort in the Northern Territory. Literacy is my passion and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone at Mildura West. Out of school, I am married with two teenage daughters. I love to spend time with my family, walk the dogs, swim and play netball.  If you see me around, please say hi and stop for chat!
